Rocker VILLE VALLO's planned retreat to leave behind the excesses of the rock 'n' roll lifestyle and work on his new album went awry, when he was introduced to a group of hard-drinking reindeer herders.
The Finnish frontman of rock band HIM planned an idyllic trip to nearby Lapland to work on the follow up to 2005s DARK LIGHT, but most of the alcohol-induced musical ideas he came up were quickly scrapped.
He recalls, "I came up with some ideas but it wasn't very beneficial for my liver, let's put it that way.
"I was drinking with these guys who have herds of reindeer. It was good fun but I met the strangest people in the mountains and we got drunk."
